How to move user Exchange OST file to different volume.

Hello,

We have 2008 R2 RDS server where multiple users will access there mailbox.

Here is the issue, C volume of RDS server is fully utilized due to OST files.

Is there anyway to move the user OST files to D volume?

I would try and use group policy.  I've never tried this after users are already using the RDS but it's worth a shot.

For office 2007: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=3795
For office 2010: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=18968

You should be able to use the group policy templates from one of those packs to enforce a policy that will set the path for OST and PST files.

Does this mean you have cachef mode enabled for users using RDS?

yes we are using cached mode on RDS.

 I hope disabling cache mode on RDS is not a best practise...

Cached mode is not advisable in any form of terminal access scenario, your tight, that is best practice.

If you have the storage available I don't see a reason to disable it.  Relocate them and be happy.  We have a hosted exchange solution and RDS users, it's a godsend when the internet is down and they need to search for an old email.

If it's Outlook 2010, it's a supported configuration. http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=15238

Supported yes BUT as that doccument states, it is not the recomendation. It is still Microsofts recomendation to use ONLINE mode when using RDS.
